I love Easter! I really love all holidays, big and small, since becoming a mother. It is so fun to interact with the innocence and joy that each new adventure has on the girls. Every year we go Pemberton Park for their Easter Eggstravaganza as they call it. The first year was awesome! The girls were a little over one and they had a great time. They colored, we dyed eggs and then they participated in the Easter egg hunt and each got about 3 or 4 eggs. They were thrilled. There was a crazy clown who kept them entertained and the overall day was perfect.
Actually the best part of this day was that H followed L around and as L bent over to pick up eggs the ones in her basket would fall out. H just waited and when they did she would pick them up and put them in her basket!
This year was pretty awful. The girls are now a little over 3 and they did not get a single egg. I was heartbroken for them. I didn’t make a big deal out of it so they wouldn’t be upset and luckily some sweet little girl gave them each an egg.
The other kids we were with didn’t get much either. No one even got to dye an egg since they ran out; the coloring station was blah and no entertainment. So we invited everyone over to have a hunt at our house later in the week.
We had a great time! The weather was perfect. I stuffed 80 eggs with stickers, a few jelly beans or bunny stretch toys. We had a spread of food and delicious beer. When I told the girls to get ready L got a little sad and said she didn’t want to do it. When I asked why she said because she wouldn’t get any eggs. I assured her that with 6 kids and 80 eggs she was bound to get at least one. That made her very happy.The kids ran around gathering eggs and having a blast while all the parents gushed with the cameras. This will definitely be a new tradition! The best part was watching their eyes light up with each egg they opened. So simple yet so perfect!
